Very first wings finished.

Oh my I still need to finish the legs, make gauntlets, boots, forearm and arms and get these connected to my back.  Spent today on these.  Love 'em but I wanted to have more done.

I gotta go for a run.  Need a break and my workouts have been nonexistent between work and building.  Little de-stress time... #workinprogress

Hey you know that stuff you pad your kitchen shelves with so plates don't slip?

Turns out you throw a coat of gloss black and then  a color over it and it could be just about anything. 
Anything I need to finish this build before @newyorkcomiccon

BECAUSE OF MY GENIUS.

NO I'M NOT NERVOUS *YOU'RE* NERVOUS.

NO *YOU* SHUUHUUUP.

Worked #cosplay til 2am and about to pack it in when @misterabsfitness tagged me on some gorgeous unused cover art by Michael Golden on Avengers Annual 10 featuring the first appearance of Rogue.

Great Minds my friend.  I love this issue.  Golden drew the living shit out of it and Chris Claremont wrote a tight story about the Avengers getting their asses handed to them both physically  by Rogue and then emotionally when their friend and teammate Carol Danvers shows up, crippled by Rogue and furious at them for basically being complicit in her abduction and rape by a cosmic entity- fallout from a very disturbing Avengers 200 that Claremont among others found reprehensible.  This annual was Claremont taking both Marvel and it's characters to task for that error in judgment.  When I met him at NYCC he spoke at length about why he had to write this story and why Carol's fate had haunted him.  I remember as a kid finding Avengers 200 disturbing and gross even while I didn't fully understand it, and I was always appreciative that this issue dealt with that even if it meant making the Avengers look like assholes.  This was the stuff that is important to Chris Claremont, not getting into arguments with John Byrne over if Dr. Doom would allow Arcade to strike a match on him. Wonderful man- he wants to talk about this stuff and every time I meet him he has great stories to tell about the process and the decisions that went into his stories.

And of course he and Michael Golden were kind enough to sign it... ; )  #marvel #marvellegends , #marvelart  #marvelfan  #nycc , #nycc2015 #comiccon #rogue  #xmen #marvelcomic #bestcosplay , #captainmarvel #caroldanvers , #msmarvel #warbird #captainmarvel #avengers  #comicbooks #art #chrisclaremont #writer #avengerscomics #firstappearance #classiccomics

Uh... woot?  I guess? 
@misterabsfitness I blame you for this. 
Nevertheless, I will, as the young people say... "bring it". @briancg74 I dub thee... "Handler" (no really, it's a thing). Does anyone know what time this menagerie is?  I better not miss the Marvel Costume Contest.  That one I have a chance in hell at nabbing at least an "honorable mention". Oh but the pictures I'll get...

The time fast approaches when The Living Death that Walks shall pierce the veil between the Negative Zone and the encroaching positive universe... And in my name and for the sake and glory of my continued existence... I shall annihilate it all.

But first  I gotta have arms and legs. 
That's important.

Sorcerer Saturday.

Being hip-deep in my Annihilus build I may show less and less as we get closer to NYCC.  But always time for a quick edit of a shot from 2015 I've always wanted to punch up- myself and Aurelio Voltaire - @aureliovoltaire as Dr. Strange facing off in the Dark Dimension. 
A pity I must crush such an artist.  Original photo by @briancg74

Wut dat?

Templates and cuts.

Fur Wut?

Shoulders and biceps.

Oh. (I know, not as exciting as last night's progress pic but you have to eat your vegetables before you get dessert). #workinprogress

To quote Miguel Ferrer from "Robocop"... "You are gonna be one bad motherFUCKer." I wasn't sure how the perfectly square shoulder pads were going to look, John Byrne makes it work when he draws it, but I didn't know if it would make the jump to 3-d.  I'd say it does though I might shear off the corners.  What do you all think?

And @r31studios I dedicate the spikes to you ; )

Tonight was building wedges for underneath the shoulder pads so they are both level and have a base to adhere to with Velcro.  I gotta get started on my limbs, and my last big challenge, affixing the wings to the back but still making the wings removable as I have to get the suit from Westchester to the Javits without breaking the shit out of it on public transportation.

But first I need some sleep.  I didn't really wake up today and pretty much left the best parts of myself still in bed.

Hot damn it worked.  It. Worked. (I made the collar - is it a collar?  Detachable but centered.  Thought I'd have to glue it to the helmet but no need). Yet... Still a shit ton to do in... less than one month.
